I think if I had given Kirk and the others what I suspect 23rd century values and morals may actually be, they would have either angered or scared the pants off the average viewer.

Gene Roddenberry (x)

ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME. Where has this been hiding? I mean first of all holy shit, it’s about 12 minutes into the video, Roddenberry says he had to make the characters from the 23rd century have the values and morals of the 20th century so he could bill it to a 1960s audience. I mean, the show was already being so progressive, showing a future in which we obtain global peace, money does not matter, race doesn’t matter, and feminism is not even needed because guess what everyone is equal, no biggie. This is interesting enough, but combine this quote with that other fucking famous K/S quote, and it gets SUPER INTERESTING. Don’t remember the other quote?

"…the only difference being, the Greek ideal— we never suggested in the series— physical love between the two. But it’s the— we certainly had the feeling that the affection was sufficient for that, if that were the particular style of the 23rd century."

He said that shit after Wrath of Khan came out, and this interview came out in 1984, the year of THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK. Gene Roddenberry designed Kirk and Spock to be an interspecies love story, you can’t convince me otherwise.

we all have to understand how important the anniversary of amok time airing is. this episode gave us slash it gave us fuck or die this episode is everything, our forebear, our origin, two men humping each other on the burning sand. let us take a moment of silence for theodore sturgeon, star trek, spock and kirk, and how totally out of control this became over time
